+1 A

Subjunctive mood, "require THAT + (noun/pronoun) + verb (in base form)".

Be careful that there are some verbs that don't accept the subjunctive mood.

Clean A with correct usage of be, complete and follow. Command subjunctive using verbs in base format.

I'm having trouble seeing what is wrong with a/c B. Would someone be able to shed some more light onto why A is the correct A/C?

As people above have mentioned, A uses command subjunctive, which is an appropriate usage here.

p.s Our book covers subjunctive, its various avatars and scenarios in detail. If you PM me your mail id, I can send the corresponding section to you.
